Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2? I got a few offers recently, and now have to make a decision between Grant Thornton Tax manager or KPMG Specialist 2. GT has higher salary and position, while KP's people are really nice and professional during the interview, besides it's hard for me to say no to a Big 4 opportunity. GT is focusing on enterprise and high net worth taxes, while KP is focusing on energy mining industry tax and tax provisions. Hard to make decision!

Currently been in DDV the past 3 years and I am stuck. I’ve had interviews and final rounds but feel like my experience is too general to get the offer. I’ve done primarily IT/Ops DD and IMO/SMO work. I’m ultimately targeting S&O / bizops, Corp strategy, or program management in tech. Any suggestions on any mid-point pivots I can make to end up in tech?

Hi all! Curious if anyone has insight into the first round interview with team manager at Google (post recruiter screen). It’s for a biz ops role and the recruiter said the call would be just behavioral. Wondering if anyone got case/problem solving questions in the first round or if those were for the final round. Trying to figure out best way to allocate preparation time. Many thanks 🙏🏻

Currently working at AM100 firm as a 7th yr litigation associate. The goal is to go in-house but haven't had a lot of luck getting past the first or second round of interviews. I have an offer for an in-house contract position (12-18 months) working on a project that's heavily regulatory and would require a lot of work drafting policies and procedures. Any thoughts on whether a contract position might be worth taking to get the experience I need for a real in-house job?
